Often the Svaha prayers are used at an agnihotra (sacred fire pit) where one chants the various mantras and ends each section of mantra by tossing grains into the fire with the word, Svaha (meaning, in effect please receive this offering).

"Swaha" of "Svaha" is basically a tribute to the devas (gods and goddess) requesting their blessings, empowerment etc (depending on exactly what one is doing) and is appropriate for anyone to use.

So for a general purpose when we just wish to chant a mantra to please god we use Namah - means I bow to you o lord.

When we do chanting for removing some disease or negativity or to get some thing from god then we use Swaha. With swaha mantra you have to sacrifice something.

so for example if we chant Shani mantra as Om Sri Shanaishwaraya Namaha , it will be for general purpose.
